Chopin: Piano Works
Format: COMPACT DISC
The colorful composition of this program, particularly adapted to the recital, illustrates in many ways the artistic personality of Chopin: the majesty of the third Ballad, the melancholic intensity of the Polonaise-Fantaisie, the miraculous delicacy of the second Impromptu, the monumental power of the Fantasy, and the patriotic heroism of the Polonaise. Philippe Guilhon-Herbert is an accomplished musician with an eclectic career. He studied with Michel Beroff, Denis Pascal, then with Jean-Claude Pennetier, Maria Joao Pires and Aldo Ciccolini at the Conservatoire de Paris. He graduated with first prizes for piano, chamber music, and accompaniment from the Conservatoire de Paris as well as from the Musikhochschule of Freiburg. He has devoted himself to the interpretation of the music of the twentieth century as well as to the classical repertoire.
